I'm a high school student currently getting ready for a state academic meet(UIL). I have a problem and I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find an answer! Why does this print out 0.0?
double d = 1/2;
It's because of the data type.
When you do
1/2 that is integer division because two operands are integers, hence it resolves to zero (0.5 rounded down to zero).
If you convert any one of them to double, you'll get a double result.
double d = 1d/2;
double d = 1/2.0;
